Abstract : An environmental characterization of two test sites to be used by TACOM for vehicle signature studies was conducted at the General Motors Proving Grounds, Milford, Michigan, during July and August 1972. Each test site consisted of a roadway (paved or unpaved) and the adjacent in situ soil surface. Detailed seismic data on compression- and shear-wave velocities, depth of interfaces, shear and compression moduli, and Poisson's ratio were determined, as were conventional environmental data consisting of topographic description and such soil parameters as wet density, moisture content, cone index, and soil particle size and type.
